is growing with speed. >> deep in the heart of texas! >> find out why i agree with rick perry. texas is not allowed to leave the union. thanks for watching. president obama came back to washington to fight for fair deal on taxes. today he called on his base. i love it. he went right to the folks who put him in the white house. president obama held his first official closed door meeting with groups from outside the white house. the invited guests were all leaders of labor organizations and progressive think tanks. compare this list to the guest list for tomorrow's meeting. 12 of the most powerful ceos in american business. this schedule was not a mistake. president obama was letting the middle class and the workers of this country know, you come first! aflcio president is confident the president will keep his commitment to the current tax rates for the middle class. >> the president led with that notion of protecting the middle class, and now you have republicans that have it in their power. they could sign a bill tomorrow that protects the middle class, and we'll see what they do. ar
of mistakes by talking about $10,000 bets with rick perry. you let him off the hook here, but he seemed like he gave a lot of clues who whom he might well be. >> well, i'll tell you, we all say things that are unfortunate from time to time. but i happen to believe, the guy who showed up in denver was the real mitt romney. and the problem was, during that campaign season when he has to debate michele bachmann, rick perry, herman cain, he had to move so far to the right. >> why didn't he go to the left? why didn't he go to the left? >> why didn't he go to the left? because he wouldn't have won the nomination. >> that's your point, your party's on the far right because that's where the votes are in the primaries. is that the problem? >> i would argue the same is true in the democratic party, the votes in the primary are far to the left. that's why you see democratic candidates having to veer to the left and then come back to the center. mitt romney got there too late. >> look at this conservative blogger. he does red states. he wrote it's wrong to blame the social conservatives, goat, you may m
talked about being picked over by bain capital? rick perry. the talk about weathervane mentality? was that david axelrod? no, that was john huntsman. the republicans laid the groundwork f the work the democrats did. >> mark? >> yes, is there a question? >> no. >> i will respond to it and say when you win, you define the victory. that is the role of american politics. ronald reagan won a lowly landslide with no mandate in 1984. wasn't morning in america? there was a bear in the woods. walter mondale -- and he won 49 states. that is when tax reform became the centerpiece of his administration. >> ok, let's dig into the election. >> whether i have earned your vote or not, i have listened to you, i have learned from you, and you have made me a better president. >> at a time like this, we cannot risk partisan bickering. our leaders have to reach across the aisle to do the citizens work. >> an extremely gracious concession speech by gov. romney. romney lost the state where he was governor, the state where he votes, mass., some pundits have egg all over their faces. what made the differ
this and the impact on the romney campaign. the debate where romney moved to the right of rick perry on the question of immigration. that is not where it happened. he got off the train back in february when jan euribor -- jan brewer endorse them. the architect of the law that says if you are white, you are all right. if you are brown, show me your papers. that resonated throughout the country. back in february, with that endorsement. it was great for the republican primary. for the general election -- there was a reaction from hispanics. and even marco rubio cannot correct the problem. they have a deeper problem. they have to deal with the george wallaces of the republican party. >> charles? >> and the demographics, the idea of republicans being white, i think, is wrong. it is true they have problems with african-americans, single women, and young people. those tend to be liberal. with hispanics that are naturally more conservative, religious, a catholic, it requires a change in policy on immigration. it can be done in one stroke. once it is done, we will not be speaking about the demographic issue.
to understand the average american. there was the $10,000 bet he offered rick perry in one of those really primary debates. that became so notorious that it was part of the narrative. >> many voters feel that mitt romney's out of touch with real americans after he tried to make the bet with rick perry for $10,000. yeah, when asked to comment, mitt said, i'm sorry, but that's all i had in my pocket at the time. chris: wow. what romney thought he could score points after president obama said the private sector was doing just fine. david lederman turned it around on romney. >> mitt romney jumped right on this and waste nod time issuing this response -- wasted no time issuing this response saying that the private sector is fine. watch what mitt had to say. >> after president obama made this statement -- >> the private sector is doing fine. >> mitt romney quickly responded. >> he said the private sector is doing fine. is he really that out of touch? >> speaking from the hot tub of his luxury yacht and another yacht next to a private island that's part of his chain of islands. mitt mitt, in touc
beat president obama. >> i think that's true, out of that group, rick perry, herman cain, plaintiff was the best candidate. i think that is correct. but there's a danger to them looking too much to the personality of mitt romney saying he was not the right guy, he didn't do a good job. in fact his own party doomed him. the positions he had to take in the primary on immigration, on women's issues, on not accepting a 10-1 spending cut to tax increase deal, those things set him up for defeat and he was never able to overcome the sense that he is part of this party that has done everything they possibly can to keep the president from succeeding. >> ari melber, today's "new york post" column. barack obama is one of the greatest politicians of all time. >> it's sort of the mirror image of the point krystal is making. which is to focus on the personality of mitt romney and then to try and say that this victory is limited to the political genius of david axelrod as you showed bill o'reilly saying, or that barack obama is a good politician, which he is, but i think there's something more fun
, rick perry, the governor of oklahoma -- >> yeah, somebody sent me an article last week, and it is actually a good gamble for them, because they have procrastinated so much now that it will be hard to get everything up and running by the beginning of january 2014, so they have to scramble, and they were procrastinating because they didn't think the president would win a second term. >> stephanie: because they were listening to orca. >> right. so the idea is turn it over to the federal government but it's actually strategically smart on their part because if it is a success, they are continue with it and take it over if it's a failure they can blame it on the federal government. >> stephanie: yeah the obama administration obviously had wanted them to build them, right, so they would have an incentive to make them work, but this way they can scapegoat in case things go wrong. again, didn't we used to try to govern this country in a way that was good for everybody? it's all still politics even after the election. >> also there's a lot riding on the succe
care law is fast approaching. the texas governor who ain't budging, rick perry next. >>> it is a great showdown over this health care law deadline across the country. texas governor rick perry has already decided. >> well, we have said all along that we weren't interested in putting more people on the titanic, and that's exactly what you would be doing with the expansion of medicaid. the health care exchanges, same answer on that one. we are not interested this being brought into a system that frankly nobody knows how they would work. so having washington, d.c. make the calls for the state of texas , not good policy, not good politics. the answer to this administration on expanding medicaid and the exchanges is a very emphatic no. >> and others are beginning to follow, governor. nicky hayley in south carolina and nebraska's governor and others are expected to do the same. then what? what does this mean? >> well, the states have always been where this should have been focused to begin with. we are the ones to deliver the program. you can't make this one size fits all. this goes back to
. no word on the presidential prospects of michelle bachmann, rick perry or herman cane. expect focus on rick santorum who gave mitt romney a run for his money in the primary. i guess it's never too early to start talking about what could be a jam packed 2016 election cycle. >> if you have not had enough of politics this week, check out square off this sunday morning , the round table discussion show hosted by rich chair. everything from the election to the fiscal cliff battle. square off airs here on abc 2 at 11:00 a.m. sunday. >>> they have dogs and ducks and paintings and posts. >> you can always take in a spectacular view in easton, wyatt everhart is here with more on the water foul festival. where is our fox? is that fox going to make an appearance again. >> a great mascot for the festival and a goose mascot floating around, too. they won't be involved in this. we are talking about art. the incredible art here, a huge part of the 42nd water foul festival. the carpenter, why? this is building his nest. that's how this painting got its name. i want to talk to two of the people behi
the candidates from 2012 trying their hands again? rick santorum, rick perry, both said to be thinking about it according to politico. weigh in on that. >> i think rick santorum will almost certainly run. he had a pretty good showing last time. he did well in the early states. he acquitted himself well in the debates. he's particularly popular with social conservatives but also working class republicans. i think santorum is definitely a likely candidate. rick perry obviously flamed out, didn't do so well. not so sure there's a second try for rick perry. >> richard, i want to talk about chris christie with you. there was that quinnipiac poll, 89% in it said his response was excellent or good. the internal poll, they're even better than 89%. is he the future of the gop? >> he has to get through his re-election first. we've seen this before to a certain extent. props to governor christie for doing what he did and, frankly, for rising above poll 0 particulars and saying that the president did a good job. but we saw this once before. remember when charlie crist, the former governor of florida, ph
moments we will remember, for sure, for years to come. candidates from rick perry to the president himself all made their share of goofs, bloopers, and blunders. our friend comedian dean obadallah has made a list of his favorites. i want to get to your list, but i want our viewers, first, to take a look at the moment at the top of your list. herman cain talking foreign policy. >> when they asked me who is the presses of ubekiki stanstan, i'm going to say i don't know, do you know? >> bekibeki stanstan? >> i think when he said that comedians around the country said that's our guy. that's the guy we want to have the nomination, and he sang the song "imagine there's no pizza." i mean, sometimes they do things intentionally funny and unintentionally funny. we appreciate both as comedians, and herman cain had a lot of potential to be a great candidate xheedically. >> rick peri, we can't forget his big oops. that also made your list. a painful time trying to remember the third of three federal agencies that he said he was going to cut as president, but let's watch this. >> it's three agencies of
the republican primary when governor rick perry was all but run off the stage. again, this was before he couldn't name the three agencies that he would eliminate. where was this sentiment then, and will it work on latino voters? >> well, i think that sent want was certainly behind the scenes. you had moderate republicans cheering rick perry because of his approach to latinos in texas, his familiarity with that important group. again, he made a big gaffe, and you saw mitt romney really try to run to the right of rick perry and talk about self-deportation and things like that. the problem, i think, for lindsey graham is he's going to face a primary challenge in south carolina. i'm from south carolina. those folks down there see lindsey graham as a bit of a rhinos. he has to be careful there. there is this groundswell in the republican party that looks at the numbers. by 2050, 30% of america will r latinos. they have to work on laws but on their tone in terms of how they talk about latinos. >> do you believe senator graham would dip his toe in the water if he didn't try to gauge the temperature an
mitt romney. pickedd about being over by bain capital? rick perry. the talk about weaervane mentality? was that david axelrod? no, that was john huntsman. the republicans laid the thendwork for the work democrats did. >> mark? >> yes, is there a question? >> no. i just want you to respond -- >> i wilrespond to it and say the you win, you define victory. that is the role of american politics. lowly reagan won a landslide with no mandate in 1984. was it morning in america? there was a bear in the woods. you willl recall. walter mondale -- and he won 49 states. then he defined it. became when tax reform hiscenterpiece of administration. this year, ame'sca's privatately-owned freight il railroads plan tspend $23 billion on their network. that's like building 4 nat's stadiums, 5 wilson bridges, and 8 dc convention centers...all in one year. and not a penny of it comes from taxpayers. better phone, better internet. it was like somebody like took our computer, shook all the junk out of it. we're actually getting more for our money with fios.

was a live of activity. you had hundreds of people buzzing around. you go to rick perry's office and there's one dude there. hello, hello. >> jon: can i tell you, my guess is that dude was awesome. >> he was happy to have a visitor. >> jon: he was excited. >> and newt gingrich had frank luntz wandering around his office and a bunch of fat people. [laughter and applause] >> jon: can you stick around for a couple minutes? >> yeah. >> jon: "the signal and the noise," it's on the bookshelves now. buy it and also at the same time a calculator. nate silver. [applause] >> that's our show. join us tomorrow night, 11:00. president barack obama will be in the studio. we'll have a nice conversation. here it is, your moment of zen. >> on facebook, use of the phrase of "women binders" went up. sketchy went up. gangbangers went up. >> did you say "gang backers"?
and the devicesive ideological primary that mitt romney made, proposed the dream act to beat rick perry has cost him in the election. there will be that conversation and a loud conversation in the republican party but look, that's what elections do. they teach you lessons. i think michael is right, the party will have that conversation internally and i believe they will be competitive moving forward because they don't have a choice. >> go ahead. >> i think it's a one-sided conversation because if you get 27% of the hispanic vote, you cease to be a national party moving forward. i think most smart republicans will get that. there will be disagreement on how you respond to that but this is one area where mitt romney unfortunately deserved what he got. that wasn't always true in every case in this election but he demagogue this issue in separate election cycles against five opponents including rick perry this last time around. that came back to hurt him. it puts people like jeb bush and marco rubio in a commanding leadership position on these issues. the party should and i hope will look to them for si
to become the republican nominee? you look at how rick perry handled himself, newt gringrich all of them. he didn't beat any men of stature. it was embarrassing to watch. >> cenk: yes yes, no question it was a weak division. we got to leave it right there. when we come back we have much more for you. first, we have some unrest on campuses, racial unrest, unfortunately, after president president obama wins. >> there were racial slurs thrown out on both sides. >> there is always the under current that pops up occasionally. >> cenk: well, they burned an obama sign. that's a little overt. then later in the program. >> congressman paul ryan, is he the leader of the republican party now. >> i wouldn't think so. paul ryan is a policy. at cepacol we've heard people are going to extremes to relieve their sore throats. oh, okay, you don't need to do that. but i don't want any more of the usual lozenges and i want new cooling relief! ugh. how do you feel? now i'm cold. hmm. this is a better choice. new cepacol sensations cools instantly, and has an active ingredient that stays with you long afte

conflict of our founding fathers. >> jennifer: really? that's rick perry vowing to stop obama-care. i really don't remember reading anywhere in the constitution that our founding fathers are against universal healthcare. texas is not alone. kansas, alaska oklahoma among others who say they have no plans to implement obama-care. states only have until friday--this friday to say how they're going to enact obama-care if the federal government--if they don't do it, the federal government will step in to do it for them. so for perspective on that issue i'm joined by mother jones reporter andy kr oh oll joining us by scape from ready ford, virginia. welcome in "the war room"." >> thanks for having me. >> jennifer: describe for people what exactly is that these states have to set in motion by friday. >> very simply, it's a website where you can go to, an array of options, a menu of health insurance plans that you as a consumer can pick from. you can pick out the price. you can pick out the options like you would on a car. you you do you have extra added benefits or do you pare back your bene

on! grow up. but by the way, remember rick perry, early on, in the first i think one of the first rallies on tax day a few years ago he talked about texas. they didn't get the right tax policy. they were going to secede from the union. well rick perry has learned his lesson. yesterday he came out and threw cold water on the secessionists. >> people are free to do whatever people want to do. we've got a great country. >> bill: we've got a great country and rick perry says i'm staying right here. yeah. i think some of these people ought to be reminded we've been through this. we fought this. united we stand divided we fall. that's what the civil war was all about. you lost, losers. you lost. deal with it. barack obama is here for in our four years. i would say more but this is a radio show and television show and i can't say what i really think about it. >> announcer: this is the "bill press show." current tv, it's been all building up to this. >>bill shares his views, now it's your turn. >>i know yo
. and that was the night that governor rick perry got booed by the audience. not just mistreated by the candidates, but booed by the audience for defending in-state tuition for the children of undocumented workers in texas. which passed in 2001 with only five state legislators voting against it. do you know how difficult it is to get all but five texas state legislators to agree on anything? >> very hard. >> i mean, it's almost impossible. today won't even agree on what time the sun came up. but they agreed to this legislation because it was right for texas, it was right for these young people. this is the low-hanging fruit. these young people have done nothing wrong. they have broken no lawment -- law. they are here because of their parents' actions, and i don't believe the united states of america is a country that wants to punish children for their parents' behavior. these young people want to be americans, they want to improve themselves and be contributors to our economy, and it is immoral for us to put, put barricades in their path. and, frankly, as a republican -- and i was ashamed of my pa
's opponents to engage, which they eventually did, as you remember. newt gingrich did and rick perry did. >> woodruff: so they really injected themselves into the primary process. >> exactly. >> woodruff: philip rucker, tell us, first of all, how did the romney folks early on see this campaign? and how did they deal with this move by the obama team, even in the primaries, to come after him? >> yeah, well, from the very beginning when governor romney got tho spo this race he and his adviserred decide they wanted this to be a referendum on presidenpresident obama's stewaf the economy and they thought governor romney, given his years of experience in the private sector could present himself as the only republican sort of with the skills and upon-how and experience to turn around the economy and they were just going to hammer that message all year long. and, indeed, they did. but when the bain capital attacks came, the romney campaign was pretty prepared for them. you'll remember back in 1994, in his race against senator ted kennedy, he dealt with a lot of these same attacks over his career
